I have a rash around my waistline. Small raised red bumps

Customer Question

I have a rash around my waistline. Small raised red bumps have appeared around my waist and under my pubic hair. They are not on my genitals so I'm hoping it is a dermatology issue and not a sexual health issue. They typically don't itch unless irritated by my pants line. They are not painful. Any thoughts on what these may be?

Hi

Can I ask if you shave the area involved?

I do not shave the area involved. Never have. I did notice them once I started working a job in which I am running around sweating a lot. I was hoping that had something to do with it. I did come across a viral "STD" the name of which escapes me that unfortunately looks similar to what I see. Hope that's not it.
Expert:  Dr Jef Burk replied 5 years ago.
Thanks

Can you post an image of the rash?

You need to use the tree icon on the toolbar.

Dr Jef
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I'm not sure what you mean by the tree icon on the toolbar. Where exactly am I looking?
Expert:  Dr Jef Burk replied 5 years ago.
Hi

There should be a row of icons at the top of your dialog box - the tree icon is between the link and you tube icons.

You may need to click "show toolbar" first.

Dr Jef
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I am using google chrome as my browser. Not sure where the tree or the show toolbar options are. Should I use a different browser or is this a feature of the site?
Expert:  Dr Jef Burk replied 5 years ago.
Hi

I'm not an expert on that!

Worth trying an alternate browser.

I'll ask admin to contact you to help.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I thought I could send it via my phone. I can't get a good image, and don't have my regular camera available. Is there anyway we could pick this up at a later time?
Expert:  Dr Jef Burk replied 5 years ago.
Hi

Sure.

You can post a picture when you can.

I check out my questions every day so I will always get back to you.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I appreciate it. I'm currently uninsured and unable to afford a trip to the dermatologist. This thing has me a little paranoid. As soon as I get back to my permanent residence, I'll try and get a picture up there. Do you have any contact information for the admins so I can make sure I know how to do that?
Expert:  Dr Jef Burk replied 5 years ago.
Hi

I have already contacted them on your behalf.

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
